§ Mr. Martin
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has yet been able to investigate the question of relieving distress arising from air-raids and the delay or inadequacy of the grants; and what hopes he can hold out of establishing the system on a more satisfactory basis?
§ Sir K. Wood
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave on 5th November to the hon. Member for North Lambeth (Mr. G. Strauss). As I then stated, I am ready to investigate any particular cases where grants are considered by hon. Members to have been inadequate or to have been unduly delayed, but I cannot accept the view that the scheme for grants in respect of essential furniture and clothing is being inadequately administered.
